Amir and Faryal’s relationship
Faryal was living in her native Staten Island, New York, when a mutual friend introduced her to British boxing champion Amir. The pair reportedly met at a party in NY in 2012.
They married in 2013, in front of 300 guests, at the Waldorf Astoria Hostel in New York City. They later had a large celebration in Amir’s hometown of Bolton, reports say.
Faryal’s 1st pregnancy
Faryal’s pregnancy was announced in early 2014.
On 24 May 2014, Faryal gave birth to a daughter.
Originally, Lamaisah’s name was spelled in 2 different ways: Lamysa and Lamysah.
The couple wrote on Twitter that family and friends were struggling to pronounce the name, and eventually settled on Lamaisah.
Amir and Faryal’s marriage troubles
In August 2017, the relationship between Amir and Faryal appeared to have come to an end, with Amir tweeting:
“So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best.”
He later accused her of cheating with fellow boxing champion Anthony Joshua, a claim which both parties strenuously denied. Faryal then said their Twitter accounts had been hacked.
Amir later took to Snapchat to prove that was not the case – and confirmed the couple’s split.
Previously, the couple hit headlines over disagreements between Faryal and her in-laws, Amir’s parents Falah and Shah Khan.
Before Amir headed into the I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here jungle in November 2017, it seems the couple had a change of heart, and decided to reconcile…
Faryal’s 2nd pregnancy
In November 2017, before Amir headed to Australia, Faryal announced that she was 3 months pregnant with the couple’s 2nd child.
On Instagram, she wrote: “We’re going to be doing this all over again? #parentslove #5monthstogo?”
On 24 April 2018, Amir Khan announced that Faryal had given birth to their 2nd child, a baby girl named Alayna.
“With my and Faryal Makhdoom’ss newborn, weighing 8lbs 3oz. ALAYNA KHAN ?” he wrote in a tweet, alongside a sweet newborn selfie.
“My princess Alayna looks just like her older sister Lamaisah. #Littlesister#sisters#Princess,” he added on Instagram.
Big congrats ???
